Question about Gateway 500GR PC Desktop
My gateway computer, about 2 years old, when i push the power button, the blue light does not turn on, the hard drive and cd drive light simultaneously flash 3 times, fan runs but computer does not turn on, monitor stays off
Without seeing the machine, I'm thinking you have a motherboard problem. But try these troubleshooting steps before throwing in the towell:
Open the case and disconnect the CD cable. Now try it. If it still doesn't work, disconnect the hard drive and try it.
Let me know what happens. I've seen CDs mess up a system like this. I many times will swap out the power supply, but I'm thinking with the lights flashing, its a more serious problem.

My computer will not turn on properly. It is saying reboot and select proper boot device.
